The first Canterbury year 13 High School Art Competition was held on Wednesday 6th September. We had a great turnout with Students, Teachers and Parents attending the prize giving.

We invited two students from each High School in Canterbury to enter the competition and have had a fantastic result with amazing art works entered.  

Our judges Nathan Pohio a Conceptual Artist and Assistant Curator at the Christchurch Art Gallery and Aaron Kreisler Head of the Fine Arts Department University of Canterbury found judging a very difficult task with such high calibre entries.  Thank you Nathan and Aaron.
